I've resisted the idea of having a blog for some time now. There are a number of reasons for this, but mainly it's because I'm generally terrified of other people reading my writings. This is a bit of a problem considering that I'm a Social Anthropologist and I'm meant to produce papers and publications for a living. Besides, there are so many interesting things to discuss and I constantly talk about wanting to write more about things that interest me. So, after encouragements from long-suffering friends who have had to listen to my ramblings about various topics, confront my fears it is. Behold Internets, my thoughts about life and other stuff. I will mainly be talking about things that interest me, such as politics, Australian multiculturalism, Indonesia-related matters, food, wine, travels, books and pop culture. I promise that it won't all be about me.
I welcome suggestions, comments, and link recommendations!
